Quick post today. Just two things I wanted to mention:

Veterans day is today and if you are like me, you kept typing Veteran’s instead of Veterans. My abuse of the language never ends. In any case, I wanted to send a special shout out to MeritBuilder and their site that seeks to recognize veterans. Second year running and still a great thing. If you get the chance, go by and check it out. Read some of the stories and personal gratitude or leave your own if you feel compelled.

If you are looking at donating to charities that help veterans and their families, I would encourage you to check out the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund or the Fisher House Foundation. I really do admire the work both do in the space.

The HR Carnival is also going on over at Ben Eubanks’ UpstartHR. My favorite pieces from the bunch include a post about working for Diddy, a red purse, and the failures of SHRM. I encourage you to check out all of the posts for some great reading.
